Pioneer Transportation Route

(Clermont County Bicentennial logo)
Chartered in 1836, the Little Miami Railroad reached
Milford in 1841 and Loveland in 1844. It was the first
railroad in Clermont County. John Kugler supplied
the ties for much of the 6.15 miles of track in Clermont
County. In 1860 President-elect Abraham Lincoln rode
the train on his way to his inauguration. The railroad
played a significant role in the Civil War by carrying
troops and supplies to nearby Camp Dennison. On July 14,
1863 General John Morgan and his raiders derailed a
train near Miamiville. The fireman was killed and 150
Union recruits captured. The railroad became a part of
the Pennsylvania Railroad system in 1870. Trains
ceased operation in 1962. The Ohio Department of
Natural Resources purchased the right-of-way in 1970
and from 1983 to 1999 developed a multi-purpose paved
trail from Milford to Xenia.
